Aoife got her ears pierced today! She was super tough and barely even flinched - even though she did say that it hurt a little bit. She chose some purple crystal earrings - of course - and is very excited about the prospect of cleaning her ears three times a day for the next 6 weeks!! Aoife brought her new American Girl doll with her and afterwards Mimi took us to Starbucks for cake and hot chocolate. We sat and relaxed at a nice table outside of Starbucks in the mall. It was a really fun girls' morning!!
